Soviet soldiers on the move during the Battle of Berlin, April 1945

Soviet troops manning a PTRD-41 anti-tank rifle taking cover next to a knocked out Pz.V 'Panther' tank during the battle of Kursk in the summer of 1943. The PTRD-41 rifle fires a 14.5mm round and was found to be largely ineffective against German armour. It was relegated to being used against softer targets such as trucks, but suffered from a massive muzzle blast which frequently gave away the firer's position. (Colourised by Doug)
